    he said it's "typical",. orange and green in shade, red in sun.

    Sanguinea has a reasonably broad altitudinal range, some forms are found at quite low altitudes (especially some of the green forms), and some are definitely more intermediate and highland. All highland plants will hit a night temperature where they stop pitchering, as Trent mentioned, even ventricosa will stop pitchering if nights are consistently above 18-19C. The purple form of sanguinea is another that will stop pitchering when the nights are warm. Like with all these plants, you live and learn...

    Ditto to that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    It kinda depends upon the form of N. sanguinea you're gonna get. The "orange" from Borneo Exotics is very easily grown in the conditions you describe. It's very similar to my "lowland/intermediate" chamber which does get down to 60-65 in coldest times of winter with no plants complaining. However the "Red" form from Borneo Exotics does not seem to do as well in these same conditions. I will someday untangle it's vine and move it to a new highland chamber and hope for more massive pitchers.

    As far as how cold lowlanders can get that depends upon what you expect of them. The "true" lowlanders (amp, bical, mirabilis, raff, etc, most of those found under 1000m) will start to struggle if the temps get much below 70*F for any appreciable length of time. It slows their metabolism down and takes a good while to gain any momentum in growth back. They will often refuse to pitcher when it gets too cool, even if the light and humidity remain high.

    Hope that helps!
    Ummm...I treat my raff like a highlander and temps have dropped below 45 degrees on numerous ocasiouns and there were no bad results save some slowed growth.

    At the nature center in my town, there is a lowland greenhouse with many highland plants doing fine. There are many n.sanguineas. One has a trap over a foot long.

    Not for me. Nights are always 24+C. N. ventricosa 'black peristome' and N. sanguinea (both Malesiana) are always pitchering. I have them for a year now.
